Paddy McCormack Thurles Sarsfields
The most consistent Club keeper in Tipperary of the past decade, assured shot stopper and accuracy on puckouts all combine to make him our choice.Rhys Shelly of Moycakey Borris ran him close, but he will have another day.
Willie Eviston Loughmore Castleiney
Tigerish and secure, Willie was a shoo in based on his performances throughout the year, might be unsung by many but those in Loughmore know his worth.
Padraic Maher Thurles Sarsfields
More awards and medals than a World War 2 Soviet General, The Force of Nature will no doubt treasure this award more than all the rest.
Craig Morgan Kilruane MacDonaghs
Young Master Morgan exemplified all that was good about Kilruane,this year. Soaring Stickwork and no shortage of drive, His future with MacDonaghs and Tipp probably resides in the half backline, but for now he fills out our 2021 full back line.
Alan Flynn Kiladangan
After the never to be forgotten year of 2020,Kiladangan never really reached the heights in 2021 that they set previously,Alan Flynn however set the standard in every game for them year……..their leader.
Dan McCormack Borris-ileigh
Borris similar to Kiladangan never hit the heights in ‘21 either,but their centre back shone bright like a diamond throughout,Everytime we saw them this year, Dan was their man.
John Meagher Loughmore Castleiney
We are going to make no bones about what we are going to say next, John Meagher is deserving of a consistent run with Tipperary in the Munster League and the League itself proper, Meagher has been a colossus for Loughmore across the half back line for this years Dan Breen, Hands and Brains.
Noel Mc Grath Loughmore Castleiney
Tipperary’s and Loughmore’s Tom Brady, that is all
Ciaran Connolly Loughmore Castleiney
Missing for the mid final v Sars and Loughmore felt it,Connolly brings energy and momentum to the engine room,Colm Bonnar is bound to have taken note.
Darragh Woods Holycross Ballycahill
In a difficult year for the Mid men, Woods stood out from the trees especially in their moments of need, In the relegation final v Roscrea he scored 1-10,with 3-12 from play this year, there is more to come….
John McGrath Loughmore Castleiney
We could write an opus on his exploits this year,but we will just type 4 more letters.
Cian Darcy Kilruane MacDonaghs
The Kiruane man has proven this year he can hurl anywhere, Midfield, Half Forward and the Full Forward line, Space is where he kills you.
Paddy Creedon Thurles Sarsfields
There were times particularly when the ground was hard that We had to remind ourselves that Creedon is still only 19,A man child for his years, he lit up much of the mid and group stages, Not as effective in both finals, but his time will come. No 2 on our scorer from play list with 4-15 over the 7 Dan Breen games.
Dennis Maher Thurles Sarsfields
Dennis the Menace is normally the last lad you want to see rolling in towards you and you the opposition Full Back, an absolute handful when he decides to go direct but Maher’s game is a lot more nuanced than that as Paddy Creedon will tell you.
Pa Bourke Thurles Sarsfields
We started with the most consistent keeper in Tipp club hurling of the past decade,We fill out the list with the most consistent Tipperary club forward of the past 10 or more years.Pa Bourke finishes top of the play scoring charts with 3-19 from play.It might be Autumn in his career with the Sars,but he has a few Indian Summers days left yet.
